Nonfatal Occupational Injuries and Illnesses for Welding & Gas


Ever wondered how you compare to your peers for OSHA rates? 

The Welding & Gas industry doesn’t fall cleanly into one category, so it depends on where the majority of your business is coming from at each location (see notes below the chart for more).
If you need help calculating any of these rates, please let us know.
TABLE 1. Incidence rates(1)of nonfatal occupational injuries and illnesses by industry and case types, 2017
Industry(2) NAICS code(3) Total recordable cases Cases with days away from work, job restriction, or transfer Other recordable cases
Total Cases with days away from work(4) Cases with days of job transfer or restriction

Chemical and allied products merchant wholesalers 4246 1.9 1.2 0.6 0.6 0.7

Use 4238 if Hard Good sales at that location are over 50% and 4246 is Gas sales at that location are over 50%.
